Velvet Revolver is a Grammy Award-winning hard rock supergroup consisting of former Guns N' Roses members: Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, alongside Dave Kushner formerly of Wasted Youth. In 2004, the band achieved commercial success with their debut album, Contraband. Critics initially described Velvet Revolver as a mere combination of Stone Temple Pilots and Guns N' Roses, and have criticized the band for a "disconnection" between Scott Weiland and the rest of the band. However, the band went with a different approach for their second album Libertad), and received some acclaim. With their hit single "Slither", they won the 2005 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.

The band released Libertad in 2007, driven by the release of the single "She Builds Quick Machines", and embarked on a tour with Alice in Chains. The following year, frontman Scott Weiland was fired from the band, for erratic behavior on and off stage and not being committed to the fans or the music. They are currently auditioning potential singers, and while certain names have been circulated as potential suitors for Weiland's old job, nothing has been confirmed by the members of Velvet Revolver or its management.
